Blocking and cover techniques are a staple of many illusion and transmutation tricks. Though to really pull it off, you need a silk that is large enough to truly block out the audience’s view. Especially if you are working on a large stage or the spectators can see you from multiple angles.
A large 36-inch silk like this might also be called for as part of a float or levitation trick. When folded properly, you can even repurpose a silk this size to double as a scarf for multiple twists in your act.
If you have one of these tricks somewhere in your act, then you need a high-quality 36 inch silk like this one at a reasonable price that won’t hurt your performance budgets.
This 36-inch silk is available in 7 brilliant, and distinct colors. You can get it in black, lemon, pink, red, turquoise, white, and golden yellow. This lets you match them or contrast the silk to your costume as needed. The thinness and weight of the silk is also light enough to fold into a large pocket square, though it does just as well as a scarf or a colorful sash.
